### Abstract

*C*<

*c*, provided that the relative frame velocity

*v*<<<

*C*. Such relativistic effects depending on

*C*may be detectable in a narrow range. If allowed by nature and confirmed by experiment, this will alter our views of space-time. Known experiments do not rule this out. The total resultant velocity v

_{3 }cannot exceed

*C*in the Einstein addition of velocities due to the condition

*v*<<<

*C*. A derivation is presented which together with experiment rules out mass transformation unless the signal velocity is the speed of light.
